I had a restful week of vacation last week with my family in Minnesota. Caught fish in one of Minnesota's 14,000 lakes. Filleted them. Fried them. Ate them with a Minnesota-brewed Premium Grain Belt. All in all, it was a few days of good, healthy rest.
Often times it seems we either get bored or feel guilty when we rest. It feels like we have to do something. I've been doing more thinking about sabbath. The third commandment appears increasingly radical in our frantic society. How do we reclaim a healthy work/rest rhythm? Do we set aside times of stillness to find joy and delight in God and his work?
Take a moment to pray or sing Psalm 92. It's a Psalm of the Sabbath.
